The reason Lifewave ended was more than that, it was due to the accusations of sexual misdemeanors with children from 1976-1986, not just adults, though it was not made public at the time. Yarr was questioned by D.C.Shakespeare in 1986, and charged and detained with a court case in 1999/2000 in Chichester, but the case was dropped by the CPS because police hadn't kept their records from the original investigation. It was standard policy to keep them for only ten years at that time. In 1986 the Adepts close to Yarr and those living with him at Slindon met to discuss the claims and then decided to end the cult.
